Midnight - Kevin Egan Not the typical type of thriller that I pick up, however I was at a Literary Festival in Millbrook, NY, last weekend, met the delightful author, and my mom was kind enough to purchase it for me. As I said, not my usual fair, of murder mystery/horror - this was more what's going to happen next, suspense. Though I do love the lawyer genre, I generally don't go for suspense and I'll admit to putting it down several times over the last few days to let it sit. But I think that's really a compliment, as it was so suspenseful, I had to take a break and walk away. It was very readable, the writing flowed, the characters made sense, and I understood their motivations. I'm really looking forward to reading more of Kevin's work.
